Fishing Reports

Upper Sac Fishing Image
June 12, 2024
Upper Sac Report by Mat Squillante

Flows are dropping, opening up more wading and fishing opportunities. The fish have been cooperative, with plenty of bugs keeping them actively feeding. Nymphing has been productive, both morning and evening. Stones, caddis and mayflies are on the menu, so switch bugs if you're not getting grabs. The entire team, Brian, Colin, Kevin, Ben, Luke, Scottie, Mike, Mat and even Andrew has been on the water. Fall River, Lower Sac, Upper Sac, McCloud, Hat Creek, trout, striper, bass or shad – take your pick. June is game on and a great time to book a trip.   TIP: Especially on smaller water, that's clear like the Upper Sac, stealth is your friend. Keep a low profile and stay back from the water's edge until you've fished close. Put less line on the water, high stick. Read the water carefully, break it down into small pieces. Fish thoroughly. You'll enjoy better results. 

Fall River Fishing Image

Fall River Report by Randy Hamann

Spent 3 days on the Fall, last Sunday-Tuesday, the weather was variable, had clouds and wind on both Sunday and Monday, fishing was a little Scratchy, Tuesday the clouds parted and the sun came out and the fish were grabby, I would rate the morning as, as good as it gets !  Fish are spreading out now, moving down river, occupying areas that were mostly void of trout a couple weeks ago. Hex hatch is right around the corner, with warmer temps should start the Hex off in the next week or so and go into July.I have openings available, please hit me up, would love to show you around this wonderfull fishery, One of a Kind ! Feel free to reach out with any questions or to check my schedule 775-781-1058 

Lower Sac Fishing Image

Lower Sac Report by Andrew Harris

Shad are plentiful in the Sacramento River below Red Bluff right now.  These fish run from 1-5 pounds with most in the 1-2 pound range.  They like to hold in swift water and fight really hard.  They also like to eat ridiculous brightly-colored flies that no other fish would eat.  Luke Geraty is doing PM Shad trips this summer.  The shad will be around at least through the end of June and probably well into July.  Book an afternoon trip and see what it's all about!
